Notes / Commercial Description:
Bourbon Carrot Cake is an experimental dessert ale made with carrots, marshmallow, vanilla, maple syrup, orange zest, walnuts, pecans and spices and then aged in bourbon barrels. The aroma is enticing, emitting fragrances that literally recreate a slice of carrot cake that has been soaked in bourbon, right down to the cream cheese frosting. Incredibly complex, yet surprisingly balanced, the flavor of each specialty ingredient seems to take its turn. Pleasant flavors of spice and cream resonate on the pallet causing an uncontrollable craving to taste more.

Pours dark brown with thin, short, off white head fades quickly.

Smells spicey, nutty, bourbon, vanilla, cream

Tastes sweet spicey cake, nutty, bourbon, cream like taste and hints of vanilla. Finish is sweet with light spice linger. Higher medium body and smooth medium carbonation
